Environment & Sustainability

At Obayashi, we recognize the construction industry's environmental impact and our responsibilities in this area. We are committed to the following key issues.

  • Global Warming Countermeasures
  • Construction Waste Management
  • Chemical Substance Control
  • Eco-system Conservation
  • Green Procurement

Through our construction business, we are involved closely with the global environment. We continue to implement a wide range of initiatives, with a long-term vision aimed at mitigating our impact on the natural environment and ecosystem.

When designing buildings, we select environmentally friendly technologies based on our customers' needs, as well as our approach of sustainable construction. We are achieving steadily improving results, including reducing CO2 emissions by 30% over standard buildings over the building life cycle.

We incorporate consideration for the environment into the project planning and design stage, and procure materials, products, and technologies with minimal impact on the environment. At the construction stage, we minimize emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, and after construction is complete, our highly experienced engineers also resolve environmental issues in maintenance and management.

As a leader in the construction industry, we implement construction projects with consideration for the future of the planet.
